Is a babywearing coat worth the $? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
I haven't seen a felix pera in person, no. It looks like it's well-designed around the collar area, where the kindercoat is a bit of a pain there (but still better than the alternative lol). But I've no idea how heavy or thick it is.

And I hadn't seen there was a Deluxe Kindercoat now! That looks fantastic, I love the colour options!!! I wish I had years more babywearing ahead of me lol... I'd get me one... It's hip carries we use 99% of the time now with DD... I had taken to just using a front carry in the mei tai when using the coat, but I'd love to be able to stuff her on the hip in the ring sling... sigh.

I got my coat yesterday and went for a walk right away with my lo up front. I LOVE it

tankgirl73 I saw the new delux. I normally don't hip carry my lo just for short trips shopping. I usually use my mt or my bali breeze for long trips. Mostly my mt because I havent really gotten the hang of the bali Breeze

Does anyone know if the kinder coat would work while wearing a toddler on your back? I don't have a car and we walk a lot. I have resorted to wearing my coat backwards on my front (does that make sense?) but something like this would be great if it is big enough to accommodate a toddler.

Tracey, if you go into Ebay and look under "Tragejacke" you will find a few

Oh yes, the whole point is you can use it for backcarries.

And I gotta say, living here in "no snow" (hah!) Portland, I am SO GLAD we have the kindercoat. It snowed over the weekend, and it is close to 0 degrees F here with the wind chill. Brrrr!

But we put the insert in, and, even if we weren't warm, we weren't cold anywhere we had the jacket on.

Jezzy - I am in Homburg (between Saarbrucken and Kaiserlautern). We have been here about 3 months. How about yourself? Thanks for the search tool...unfortunately I don't speak German (yet- I hope to take classes at some point), which sometimes can make things a little difficult!

I will definitely be checking them out and would love to hear more jacket reviews from those of you that have them.
